2500 Controller

2500 Controller

High Performance Control in a Versatile, Modular System

High performance, high accuracy, high functionality in an I/O system that provides cost effective access to a wide range of advanced functions including PID control with auto tuning and gain scheduling.

Designed to communicate with Modbus RTU, Profibus®, DeviceNet®, or Modbus TCP/IP masters, it can be used for signal conditioning, alarm monitoring, remote data acquisition, or devolved control for systems such as the Eurotherm® Visual Supervisor, PC-based SCADA packages, and PLCs.

Brand: Eurotherm
Product Code: 2500

Devolved Control

Eight PID blocks, provide an extensive range of control strategies. Each block offers one-shot auto tuning to optimize control performance without the need for specialist knowledge. Every PID block may be a Single PID, Cascade, Ratio or Override controller, each providing the choice of analog, time proportioned, or valve position output.

Mounting Flexibility

Six base sizes are available to take from 2 to 16 I/O modules each. Up to 16 bases may be daisy chained to provide acquisition and multi-loop control solutions with up to 128 I/O per base.

DIN rail mounting allows the 2500 to be located where the control action is required, minimizing the cost of the cable used, as only the communications need be taken to the User Interface. The 2500 may also be mounted on part of the machine, saving the cost of centralized control cubicles.

Easy Configuration

A friendly Windows configurator package, ‘iTools,’ is used to set up the 2500. iTools parameterizes and commissions the I/O points, the Toolkit, and PID function blocks and interconnects the different variables, alarms, function blocks, and I/O. ‘Toolkit blocks’ provide local combinational logic and mathematical calculation.
